comparisons to katrina, there's a reason for it. things are starting to look and feel like a deep, long-haul disaster. the grisly business of finding bodies, the daily realization that the face of the earth has changed, especially along the jersey shore. this is the new contour of the jersey shore. and right where we are is the borderline between two towns which have been in the news, bayhead to the north. six miles down is seaside heights, new jersey, almost impossible to see what's left of the ferris wheel and the amusement tower. from seaside heights, new jersey, this is what we found on the beach, one of the 57 chevy replicas that was part of the ride. the ocean gave this quite a ride. but just pause and think about the number of 4 and 5-year-olds who got their first thrill on a carnival ride at the beach right in this front seat with the safety bar down to protect them. there are two kinds of damage along the jersey shore. these are the first pictures taken from beach level of some of the fanciest sections. one of these houses was valued at $13 million the day before the storm arri
what is going on. and the first thing we noticed was how much it felt like katrina. but it was much different in casualties with katrina, but then looking in the windows, and seeing men, women and children waving at us. most of them were smiling. the reason most of them are smiling is because the water has gone down a bit. the feeling is that it will continue to go down and they will be perhaps to start walking out of their houses tomorrow. it's not guaranteed yet. we saw scores of people waving at us, waiting to get out of their homes. we saw people trying to leave on their own. they seemed confused. a few people were driving through the water and so the cars got stuck and they could not push them. a police officer got out and went to rescue the people. took the woman on his shoulder and brought her to the shovel we were sitting in and the mayor and i helped to pull the woman in and the two other people in, that's the situation. it's incredible. right now, there are people in the dark and cold, waiting to be able to come out of their homes safely. >> it's amazing as you tell it. ga

not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the federal response, it's been from individuals not taking the necessary steps to be ready. and then in the

're operating. this is cover of "the washington post." this is new york's katrina. obviously the death toll compared to that storm nowhere near approaching it but still 20 some odd people dead in new york alone. 2 million people without power. for those of you that live around here, we hope you're safe and your homes are okay and families are okay. if you're in other parts of the country or the world trying to trade today, there are going to be business decisions, trading decisions to be made. >> we don't know how badly the insurance is going to do. it's up to you. you may think it's bad for insurance. maybe it's good. we don't have a good ballpark of how much and more importantly, so much of the damage is flooding, which historically has been one of those things where you call the insurance company and they say did you read the fine print? we don't cover flooding. the federal government has at various times extended flood insurance and helped people. particularly when anyone remembers the fiasco where the federal government says, listen rich people, you can build beautiful houses again. th
a look at what's going on. the first thing, we noticed how much it felt like katrina to us there are differences, there are no casualties here, but it felt like new orleans going down the watery streets and looking in the window, seeing men, women, and children waving at us. most of them were smiling. the reason they are smiling, the water is receding. it will continue to recede and perhaps as early as tomorrow, they will be able to start walking out of their houses. not guaranteed just yet. we saw scores of people waving at us, waiting to get out of their home. we saw a case of some people trying to leave. seemed confused. two people driving vehicles through four feet of water. they got stuck, then started pushing their cars. a police officer with us on the front loader got out, took the woman, put the woman on her shoulder, brought her to the shovel we were sitting in. the mayor and i helped pull the woman in that's the situation. incredible. right behind me, people in the dark and the cold waiting to be able to come out of their homes safely. >> it's amazing as you tell
around katrina because of that reason and bush suffered terribly for that decision but governor christie has welcomed president obama today so no one complaining about that in new jersey. >>neil: in new jersey. the rest of the state...i don't know, if obama was offering help, i would take it. thank you, byron. the president is in atlantic city with governor chris christie and he should be speaking shortly, fema officials are there and other top officials. rick, what do you see there? rick: incredible devastation in this community and many more up and down the new jersey coastline this is one of hundreds of homes that was damaged, some of them destroyed. you can see in this guy's front door and see the pool table covered with several feet of ground. >>neil: i will come back do you, but, now, with the president. >> we are surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline, we want to show the president that personally, and i had an opportunity to see and discuss it at length, and, then, going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and they can see the president and
in lives and economic damage might be less than katrina. i know our insurance analyst has talked about the size of the liability being half, which is good news. and i think there's going to be some affect on auto sales and consumer retail spending. but, again, if those stocks take a dip, that's going to be a pretty big opportunity. because we know when you have to fix a broken window you end up with more spending. overall, this could be a boost to the economy. i think it's going to be viewed as an opportunity. i think we're seeing in some of the premarket activity. >> i never know really whether to believe that or not. i see with insurance companies and i've seen the case made, the broken window case that you eventually have to fix it. net net, replacing things that may have been -- didn't need replacing and using capital to do that, i can't believe that, you know, spending $20 billion on what you didn't have to do before can be net net be good long-term. is that really true? is that the case that economists make? >> well, i think it depends on how much credit is involved. in other wor
, at the height of the storm. i heard about this. we covered katrina so much, and we covered all the horror stories of the patients there. how the generators failed or why is something to look at in days ahead. but for everybody who worked there, as a resident of the city, i want to say thank you. >> you're welcome. it was the whole team. you have to remember that 19 babies that people took one at a time. >> each had that team. incredible. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> thank you so much. yeah. makes your heart feel good. another critical story is in its final days from now until tuesday. president obama, mitt romney plan to campaign nonstop in battleground states. today the romney campaign added a new one to the list. is that a sign of confidence or is it a bluff? we'll talk about that. if you think running a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do
it? >> fema responds rather adroitly to -- katrina notwithstanding, to these disasters. i suspect they're going to be quite responsive right now for those who have been displaced, who have lost family members, who don't have homes. i think there will be a rapid response from the federal government. >> i'm just saying, we could use that money in other areas right now. not necessarily the bond buying program. just an observation. >> maria, i got say, i don't know if the bond buying is actually helping. we're seeing a lot of bond buying. i don't know where that money is going to. we see unemployment raising. >> is survey showed pick ups in demand for most classes in lending right now. so it has had a positive effect in a place where it could matter. we have seen in general some of the interest rates that matter go down in the economy, including mortgages. >> and a big uptick in housing. >> maybe not perfect, but it seems to have had an effect. >> do we anticipate the typical pickup in economic activity following a natural disaster of this magnitude here, ron? >> bill, listen, it's go
hit by hurricane katrina. he talks a lot about small businesses, still talks about it. says i'm a business guy, i know about small businesses. massachusetts when he was governor ranked 48th in small business creation. and one of the two states that ranked lower was louisiana that had gotten hit by hurricane katrina. so this is a guy who has a track record of saying one thing and doing something else. on the other hand -- on the other hand, when i ran four years ago, i made promises, too. i promised to cut taxes for middle class families. and i did. by $3,600. i promised to cut taxes for small business owners. and i did, 18 times. i promised to end taxpayer funded wall street bailouts, and we have. and by the way, we got every dime worth of money we used for the bank rescue, and we got interest with it, too. i promise to take on those financial institutions that were charging too much for student loans, and we were able to make college more affordable for millions of americans. i promised i would never walk away from the millions of jobs that were in jeopardy when the auto indu

that are working on it. some of it were deployed during katrina. they're pumping hundreds of thousands of gallons out of two lakes that are inside, and, therefore, draining that interior bowl. the word today is really reconstruction, and they are tackling this aggressively. tell me where all the sand goes. do you move the sand and recreate the beach? how does that work? >> well, there's a huge problem mayor matt dougherty said if there's any wood in there with nails in it or something, they literally will have to sift this sand with they are bare hands. people will have to go lou it to determine that it's safe. there's still a lot of work to be done, but, yes, they're shifrting it here on ocean avenue from one side to the other. they're going to push the debris in the town to ocean avenue then and then truck it all away. that's the strategy that they have. the mayor said it's the aggressive approach that he heard governor christie -- chris christie wanted him to take, and that was do whatever it takes to get the job done. >> do they have enough people to get the job done? are they bringing in wor
the folks down in the gulf coast experienced back in 2005 with katrina, and i found this online and wanted to read it and close out the week and show this way, this is a letter from new orleans to folks here in the northeast. it reads this. dear northeast, wow, is your week about to suck. potentially it will continue to be so for many months, but ultimately you'll come out it okay. people find a way. you will become very resourceful. you'll bond with your friends and neighbors in ways you never expected, and you'll have a lot of love and help from the rest of us from far away too. all that said i hope you're ready for a fight. there might be someone to tell you whatever happened it was punishment from god, that you're an idiot for where you live, that your homes should be abandoned. there will be a lot of people who will say it's your own damn fault, that you deserve this misery, that the rest of us should not be responsible for taking care of you, that you're not worth saving. don't listen to those people. we know what you're going to. if you need to, call us. you can stay with us as long
been through with katrina and rita down on the gulf, you have to know that government has a purpose. i have always said that. it can be constructive. it's an umbrella on a rainy day to take the story at hand with sandy's enormous storm. but governor romney does not want to support government in the way that helps people. and that means eliminating medicare. it means not caring about seniors, not providing for pell grants. you can't flip-flop in the last hours to suggest you would embrace government. we all want government to be efficient, and president obama has been a leader. he has the smallest federal government we have had in decades under president obama. smallest number of employees, but it has been efficient enough to be effective on the east coast, rising to the occasion, to the extent that republican governors have given the president and his team compliments in their responsiveness and the mayor of new york has endorsed him. it's not about that. it's about the president wanting to support a constructive government and governor romney who is trying to be president, running aga
at any national tragedy from katrina to hurricane andrew, you ask yourself, did fema come through that without criticism? did everyone believe fema was the best source of aid in that situation? the local governments could be better sources to handle these situations. >> i think historically a smart and efficient federal response has saved a lot of lives and helped a lot of people. but you should be careful not to politicize this today, but i do think that he's going to have to answer these questions. they have five days to go, six days to go, we are in the middle of this disaster. these questions are going to come up until he gives a real answer. >> i was watching the press conference yesterday with president obama addressing this at the red cross and what he said was that the states need to take this issue at hand. so do the private companies. they need to lean forward and that fema is there for them. so it was an interesting response also in the -- that's what i thought, but i'm not quite sure there. it is nice to have you weigh in on that. >> when mitt romney said that at the d
